Lisa Wipfli's Instagram game just ramped up a notch, and if you're into nice clothing that's both uber chic and super practical, you might want to listen up.
The mum-of-three and wife of radio personality Michael "Wippa" Wipfli has a cult following on the social media platform, with mothers and fashion enthusiasts alike gaining plenty from her quirky content.
But her latest picture has really cut the cake into mass-audience territory - and it's because of one, very in-demand dress.
Spending the summer in various seaside locations across Sydney, Lisa has understandably taken to her Instagram throughout, sharing candid pictures of her three children, lighter moments with comedic Wippa and plenty of beachside attire to inspire our wardrobes.
This week, she shared a pic of herself and Wippa aboard a boat, with the stylish mum wearing what we can only describe as the perfect summer outfit.
"Me and my bestie," she captioned, apparently unaware of the influx of comments she was about to receive from fans of her dress.

The stripy, high collared, long sleeve design struck a serious chord with her following.
"Nice photo. Love your shirt Lisa , where did you get it from?" One fan questioned.
"LOVE the dress," another added.
Even Lisa's famous pals were big fans.
"Stripes 💗💗💗💗," Aussie actress Kate Ritchie wrote.
Family friend and iconic comedian Hamish Blake added his own two cents: "OMG I have a wide brim hat I feel like that about. So versatile. So reliable. I totally get this post."
Hmmm, we sense sarcasm from Hamish's end - though we can't argue with his statement.
After being inundated with direct messages asking about the dress, Lisa shared exactly where fans could buy it. (Instagram)
Realising its popularity, Lisa later posted another snap of herself in the dress, writing: "So many lovely DM's about my dress from the weekend. It's from @passengerwear and is the perfect amount of chic and comfort all rolled into one. I'll link it in my story."
And that she did - the Passenger design retails at $210, and comes in sizes 8-16.
